|See the Owner's or User's manual for the model. If you still have the original brand name software installation, that may already be there in your Programs list. |
If you have reloaded Windows on the computer from a regular CD, Windows may not have the proper info about how the mboard's ACPI features (Standby, Hibernate, etc.) are supported by the mboard, until AFTER you have installed the main chipset drivers for the mboard in Windows.
If you have loaded or re-loaded the "drivers" for the wireless network adapter yourself, you may not have loaded them properly.
Unless the instructions for installing a device tell you otherwise.......
You DO NOT install drivers for a device while booting into Windows, if the software for the device has not been installed yet - when Windows detects a generic device or New Hardware while booting, you allow it to search for drivers, it doesn't find any, and it wants you to show it the location of the drivers - CANCEL that, continue on to the desktop, and install the software for the device using the proper installation from a CD or the proper installation file that you downloaded from the web.
If you DID install drivers that way, go to Control Panel - Classic View - Add/Remove Programs and Un-install the software you installed, reboot, DO NOT install drivers while booting, and install the software the right way !
The same applies no matter when Windows finds New Hardware !
